Make Your Own Card Set: Kill Bill

Firstly, sorry for the lack of updates as of late. I recently moved from the classroom to the office - sort of - until we hire someone to replace me, I'm still planning and teaching most of my classes still on top of all the new duties as well.

Enough excuses. On with the cards. Something tells me Quentin Tarantino's Kill Bill films will never see the cardboard as they're a) a few years old now and b) the violence isn't well suited for the 'kid friendly' hobby. Oddly enough, it was the conversation between Bill and Beatrix that somehow mentally got me thinking about parenthood. Then a week later, without suspecting anything my wife dropped the bombshell that our first child was on the way. Don't worry - there's no twisted meaning. I just felt at peace with the idea after watching it for some weird, subconscious reason.

Being a big-fan of the films (and several other Tarantino films), I present to you the do-it-yourself collection of Kill Bill autographs.

Very nice list. BTW, when did Quentin go from the most badass director to a guy who films chicks sitting around talking about penis? That's what his last two films were.

He is banned from my home after Deathproof.
